Previously owned:

1973 Dodge Challenger - Lime green, loud, obnoxious, and great fun as long as you didn't want to turn or stop. Gobs of torque but too much rust. Sold after 5 years.

1973 2002 - Bought it on a friend's recommendation after I decided I needed something a little different than the Challenger. It was quite a revelation when I discovered that one could actually go around corners as quickly as in a straight line. Terminal rust forced disposal after 3 years.

Now:

1983 BMW 533i - Daily driver, 210k miles, runs like a top, and has probably the worst case of early-80s German clearcoat disintegration ever recorded. The perfect car for commuting into NYC - fast, agile, and ugly enough to park on the street without fear.

1974 2002 - Got it set up just about the way I like it, which means I need a new project to occupy my time.
